Testing

Teton County now has at-home COVID-19 test kits available.

Please read the following fully and carefully!

  • Test kits are provided by the state when available. These are a limited resource and are for individuals in Teton County who have difficulty accessing COVID-19 testing.
  • CALL AHEAD to one of the test kit distribution sites listed below to request your test kit. If you are sick, please try and arrange for someone else to pick up a test kit for you like a neighbor, friend, or family member. If you must go out, please wear a mask.
  • Limit is one kit per person in your household.
  • Each kit contains two tests – a single negative result should not be used to rule out COVID-19 if you continue to have symptoms. If your first test is negative, but you still have symptoms, stay home and repeat with the second test in the kit as indicated on the instructions. Follow-up with your health care provider about next steps.
  • The kits available are antigen, self-administered tests – also referred to as rapid tests.
  • It is very important that individuals report all (both negative and positive) results using the instructions provided with your test kit.
  • These tests are NOT accepted for travel testing.

We have limited supply of COVID-19 tests so we are prioritizing individuals who:

  • Are Symptomatic
